"Might be the most used app on my computer!"
I like it so much I bought a licensed copy. This is, to me, the best authoring/writing app there is. My approach to writing is to quickly jot thoughts as they occur, so as to not lose them, and Azz Cardfile is perfect for that. I have many card files grouped according to subject, and I just click one open, type a card title and the note, and done. Later, I can export and organize all the the related notes into chapters and a manuscript.
It also has the ability to save images (and more) in a card.
The one feature it lacks and sorely needs, in my opinion, is the ability to right-click in the card list pane, copy a card, then right-click in the card list pane in a new instance of Azz Cardfile and paste that card. (Right now you can only paste a card into the same instance of Azz Cardfile you copied the card from.) If it could do that, Azz Cardfile would be my start-to-near-finish solution to writing.
Here's hoping the developers can make that happen soon!
Azz Cardfile is a great tool for writers, and with that little improvement, could be awesome!Editing to add: That feature I mentioned in the "cons" section -- it is possible to do copy and paste individual cards from the card list between two new, unsaved instances of Azz Cardfile. But once the files are saved and reopened, that feature no longer functions. It would be great if it did!

Updated on Mar 14, 2013Also adding: I found that M8 Free Clipboard is a good workaround for this feature. It's a clipboard app that can hold multiple items -- for example, a card title, card text, and other card content such as pictures. You can then paste them all into a new card in a different card file.
